Krispy Kreme Challenge
Twelve donuts and four fun miles make for one sticky sweet race! North Carolina State University organizes the Krispy Kreme Challenge to benefit the NC Children’s Hospital, and last year they raised $100,000. “Challengers” must finish the race in under an hour and eat a dozen donuts at mile two and, er, keep them down. “Casual Runners” can eat as many or as few Krispy Kremes as they want.
The Yuengling Shamrock Marathon
Recent studies show that drinking beer after your workout can rehydrate your body better than water. The folks at the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, couldn’t agree more! Last year they went through 226 kegs of Yuengling beer at the finish line parties, and that doesn’t include the unofficial beer fuel station along the route.
